DC Dick and Baghdad Bob

June 20, 2005

While President Bush's statements on Iraq have entered the realm of the hallucinatory, Vice President Dick Cheney's chutzpah and mendacity in the just the last few weeks hasn't gone unnoticed, either.
Cheney, the same man said who instructed Senator Pat Leahy "go f**k yourself" on the Senate floor, criticized Illinois Senator Dick Durbin for his Gitmo comments. "For him to make those comparisons was one of the most egregious things I'd ever heard on the floor of the United States Senate." Earlier, Cheney told CNN's Larry King that the Iraqi insurgency was in "the last throes."
The magnitude of Cheney's outrageous attacks and staggering deceptions about the situation on the ground in Iraq brings to mind another recent government spokesman. The spokesman? Muhammed Saeed al-Sahaf, Saddam's former Iraqi Minister of Information, also known as "Baghdad Bob."

  1. WHY does anyone even listen to this lying bunch of theives?By now everyone SHOULD know that everything they say is a LIE.

  2. Cheney today: "They're living in the tropics. They're well fed. They've got everything they could possibly want," the vice president said."
    -- yes, except the right to a fair hearing, a lawyer, or even to hear the charges against them. Sounds like a laugh-a-minute in fun-loving Gitmo prison!

  3. This administration is one of the most corrupt
    lying bunch of RATS. How anyone could be so
    stupid as to vote this guy in again is beyond
    imagination.Cheney is like lawyers, you know
    when he is lying, his lips are moving.

  4. But we were greeted as liberators... by a bunch of Middle-eastern jihadists who exclaimed: "Thank you for invading Iraq; you have no idea how liberatory it is to finally be able to shoot at you up close, as opposed to just hating you from afar."
